Yesterday Russian grandmaster Boris Savchenko won the Russian Cup event Moscow Open 2013 by scoring 7.5 out of 9 points. We were able to find Boris in the hall of the RSSU Cultural Center before the start of the award ceremony. The winner was surrounded by a crowd of participants and guests congratulating his victory. We joined the congratulations and asked Boris to say a few words about the tournament, his success, chess plans for the future and some other things.
- Now I can confess, - Boris begins - that already before the start of the event I felt the inspiration and I knew that I had to 'catch this wave' and needed to find a way to realize it, which was our beloved "Moscow Open 2013" tournament. I was very optimistic during the opening rounds though I could not have predicted that this was the way it would turn out. Sometime everything just goes your way, and sometimes it doesn't.
